Implementation of Inter-Korean Declarations Called for
Pyongyang, December 17 (KCNA) -- The June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration serve as declarations for preserving peace as they clearly indicate the orientation and ways for the Koreans to tide over the prevailing grave situation, building a lasting peace-keeping mechanism and achieving reunification and prosperity, observes Rodong Sinmun Friday in a signed article.

The declarations pave the way for preserving peace and reflect the aspiration and desire of all the compatriots for peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, the article notes, and goes on:

The U.S. is egging the south Korean warmongers onto confrontation and war in a bid to make the north and the south fight against each other with arms, but there is no ground for them to stand in armed confrontation and fight each other as they should work together for national reunification.

If a war breaks out on the peninsula, it will be Koreans who will suffer from it and it will give outside forces a chance to fish in troubled waters. The Korean nation sufficiently experienced this in the last Korean War.

The Koreans, no matter where they are, call for reconciliation and peace, not confrontation and war as they are well aware that peace alone can bring the country's reunification and the prosperity of the nation.

The said declarations serve as a banner for the Korean nation's struggle to check and frustrate the aggression and war moves of the bellicose forces at home and abroad and achieve the peaceful reunification of the country.

It is only the foreign aggressor forces and their lackeys the south Korean conservative forces that seek confrontation and war on the peninsula.

All the Koreans aspiring after peace and security and peaceful reunification of the peninsula are called upon to hold fast to the declarations and wage a more dynamic nationwide struggle to implement them.
